186 AKNALS OF BOGEE DE HOVEDEÏÎ. A.D. 1190. the book of Daniel, the Lord will give a day to the elect, that they may perform penance, because they have been led astray by Antichrist. But after they shaB have duly performed this penance, there is no one who knows how long a space of time shaB intervene before the Lord shall come to judge mankind ; but it remains subject to the determination of God at what hour God shaB judge the world, inasmuch as before the world began He pre-ordained that it should be judged. John the Apostle and EvangeBst, one of virghi purity and the chosen of the Lord, and more beloved than the rest, asked the Lord as to the end of the world, and the Lord made answer,8 " The sun shaB be turned to darkness, and the moon to blood, and from the trees blood shall drop ; the stones shaB send forth voices, the people shaB be aroused, and Antichrist, that is, the Devil, shall reign, and shaB work miracles and great signs in the people ; no one shaB be able to escape from him. He shaB be born of a woman who is a harlot of the tribe of Dan in Israel. AB those who believe in him he shaB mark with his mark on the forehead, and no one shaB be able to blot out the work, of his hands. He shaB be brought up in Chorazin, and shaB afterwards dweB hi the city of Bethsaida ; and in a few days both aB those whom he shaB kill, as also those who shaB die under his power of famine and thirst, shaB be the elect of God ; he wBl raise the false ones who are dead," he wiB turn back rivers in their course, he wiB pluck up trees by the roots, and wBl turn the branches to the earth, and their roots upwards, and by his diabolical arts make them blossom. Many he wiB lead astray. On the day on which he shaB be born, aB who dweB in the four quarters of the world wBl know that he has been born ; the Scripture bearing witness thereto, which says, " In every house the carcase of one dead man shaB be a sign."7 Then in his time shaB the father slay the son, and the son the father, and the brother the brother, and the faithful shaB be found wanting in aB things. "Women shaB be menstruous, and shaB not hide themselves from men ; the churches shaB be destroyed, the priests shaB mourn, no memorials wBl be preserved 6 It need hardly be said that this answer, given to Saint John, only existed in the author's imagination, or was conveyed in some monkish legend. It is probably based on Rev. vi. 12. • This seems to be the meaning of " suscitabit falsos mortuos." 7 Probably alluding to the words of Gen. xii. 30.
